Obasanjo’s Wife Sues him and “Baba Ijebu” Founder over Son’s Wedding | Demands Postponement



Olusegun Obasanjo

Taiwo Obasanjo, the wife of Nigeria’s former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Monday, filed a suit at an Ikeja High Court, seeking to stop the wedding of her son, Olujonwo Obasanjo, scheduled for May 11.

The father of the bride, Kessington Adebutu, promoter of Premier Lotto known as “Baba Ijebu” is also a respondent in the suit.

Taiwo Obasanjo is seeking a postponement of the wedding of her son to Tope Adebutu scheduled for May 11 and May 12.

According to Vanguard, she said she had received warnings and prophesies from men of God that her son should not be involved in any elaborate celebration before his 34th birthday on June 1. She also claims wedding invitations have been sent out and she has been excluded from the preparations for the ceremonies.

She wants the wedding to be fixed for a date after June 1.

Taiwo Obasanjo, among others, is seeking a court declaration that as the mother of the groom, she had the rights to take part in the deliberations, decisions and activities leading to the forthcoming ceremony.

She wants the court to compel Adebutu and Obasanjo to shift the wedding to a date after June 1 after she had appealed to Adebutu, the bride’s mother Rosemary Dacosta, and the bride, Tope Adebutu.

Justice Lateefa Okunnu has fixed April 10 for the hearing of the suit no. ID/262FPM/2017.

      Her lawyer is not doing her justice at all. Sorry, her weird feelings is NOT enough evidence. Nigerian parents always see spiritual things when it comes to their sons and most times it’s all rubbish. Leave it for the bride and groom to decide. It makes sense if the mother is not included because she’s busy trying to have it her way. Let’s see what the judge decides because this should be settled outside court since it’s more of family shenanigans.

    it is so obvious that she tried reasoning with them and none of them wanted to postponed so her only option is the court. who the hell will take such a case to court unless she has a strong feeling about what will happen to her son and none of them wants to believe it. if you have ever lost a child because of some warnings like this you will understand her.

    Obasanjo is a luckily charismatic man and he knows this and will use this to his advantage , Sadly Obasanjo loves to be dragged to court because he will not hear word nor consider. The man seems difficult!

    Because ordinarily it shouldn’t get this far. Lets be honest this Nigeria, parents sometimes have their reservations and concerns,

    The way some women allow some ‘men of God’ manipulate their minds regarding spiritual matters, is very sad

    And the groom and bide arent adults to decide for themselves? If she were my mother and i dont have the same revelation or spiritual leading, she would have it hot from me. Sometimes parents dont know where to draw the line. If you no marry wahala! now the young man wan marry, still there is wahala! I never see this kind thing before, court case over wedding? This is a first!

    We have allowed the so called Men of God to control our thinking. I am speaking from personal experience.

    it wont harm the couple to postpone the wedding… even if they just postpone it for peace sake and for the mother’s blessing, they dont have to believe in the words of warning…. it’s a shame, she is going to court about this

      They must stand their ground or this woman will keep making decisions for them. How will the God that turned water to wine at a wedding decree that if you enjoy your wedding day you’ll die before you reach 34. Why is it only in Nigeria that such stupid things happen? And from there her pastor will tell her to “choose” another wife for the son, that she should visit them everyday, that the wife shouldn’t give birth abroad or the husband’s money will finish, that they should give all their salary to the prophet etc. Na we religious pass in Nigeria but look at the mess we’re in politically and socially.

    I have a feeling it’s more about been tired of been dismissed and discounted because she is female.

    weird family dot com. We always hear strange things from these people. Yesterday it is allegations of a man sleeping with his daughter in law. Today the wife is suing the husband over the son’s wedding. I shudder to think of what tomorrow will bring!
